Fiddles, sax, banjo, accordion, Decca 12004. The personnel are: Paddy Killoran/Paddy Sweeny - fiddles, Jack Healy - flute/sax, Eileen O'Shea - piano, James Ryan - banjo, William McElligott - accordion. A trio of lively hornpipes. The second and third tunes are called Fly by Night and Ostinelli's Reel in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, later reprinted as Coles 1000 Fiddle Tunes, a book which seems to have been a major source for tunes, mostly these flat key hornpipes, for which it is an outstanding resource. Lad O'Bierne and Louis Quinn had recorded Fly by Night a few years earlier; private recordings made later of another Irish fiddler resident in New York, Larry Redican, have him playing Ostinelli's as a hornpipe, as heard here. It is also a tune in the repertoire of fiddlers in various Canadian traditions. Ostinelli was an Italian musician resident in Scotland in the 19th century. Jack Healy takes a nifty solo on his sax on FBN. After Ostinellis' the band swings back into the Sweep's, a device not uncommon on these old recordings. The key of these tunes (and the Orchestra's other recordings) seems to be Eb, I assume to accommodate the saxophone's fingering, perhaps indicating that it is a tenor or baritone instrument, which favors the flat keys. Other bands with saxes played in D/G, suggesting they used a C Melody sax, which can more readily play in the sharp keys.
